Rival protests in Yemen in wake of Shiite rebel power grab

Supporters of the separatist Southern Movement perform the weekly Friday prayers at their protest camp in Yemen's southern port city of Aden February 27, 2015. Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi fled to Aden last week after the newly dominant Shi'ite Houthi faction forced him to step down and held him under house arrest in Sanaa for a month.
